i’ve been having problems with depression/anxiety since around september last year. on january i started taking sertraline, but stopped as the side effects were really bad and not improving. For 12 weeks now i’ve been taking citalopram 20mg, and it’s been amazing for my anxiety symptoms but mood wise done nothing at all, if anything things keep getting worse. I really really don’t want to switch again seeing as i’ve finally got my anxiety under control and absolutely can’t go back to how terrible it was before. I’m also thinking increasing citalopram to 40 won’t make too much difference seeing as things are actually worsening on 20. Also my sleep is terrible (despite months of ‘sleep hygiene’) on 20 so can imagine 40 being even worse. really feel like i can’t keep going like this and i’m on the waiting list for counselling (looking like it’ll happen in August) so I’ve been thinking about maybe suggesting to my GP about adding another medication, and I’m just wondering if anyone has been in a similar situation and what has worked?
thanks in advance!
